What a difference a day makes

Wednesday 8th November & Friday 10th November 2017

On Wednesday I went to see my Dad as usual in the morning. That meant that Teddy and I went for our walk over Canford Heath in the afternoon. It was a lovely sunny day as you can see from this photo looking along South Walk.

And here’s Teddy, posing nicely for me.

When we do these Wednesday afternoon walks I park at Steeple Close to avoid the school traffic. Then we head up to South Walk and cut down the middle of the heath. We can either pick up the Old Coach Road for this or walk down the track that runs alongside the main fenced area of the heath, as we did today. This is where this photo was taken. You can just see Teddy having a sniff at the grass in the distance.

Where's Teddy?

After that we cut back across the heath to the stream and then continue on across Longfleet Drive towards the other wide track that runs up from the Redbrick Path. En route we pass one of my favourite trees, so here is another photo of it for you.

And then we head down towards the Redbrick path and back to Steeple Close, but not before I’d taken a photo of the sun setting behind another group of ringed and dying trees.

A crisp but sunny walk.

Thursday and Friday were very different days as the weather was miserable, so I didn’t take my camera. But on the Friday morning, walking along the Roman Road, I spotted the smallest Sulphur Tuft fungi I have ever seen, so I had to take a photo with the phone. And here they are

The smallest Sulphur Tufts I have ever seen

You can tell how tiny they are by comparing them to the the size of the leaves next to them.
